in reply to What if it were you instead of Linus?

(Minor plug) SAGE-AU set up the Open Source Developers' Agreement Initiative. They have a set of documents about this: http://www.sage-au.org.au/osda/index.html
These are publicly available, and includes suitable agreements for most common circumstances. There is also an FAQ for employers.
Using these will help prevent code that you develop for the F/LOSS world being accidentally claimable by your employer.

[Corion]: hippo: Yes, but I'm not sure that it's even worth the effort of implementing it at all...
[Corion]: You'll only ever need that option if you have a long-running query whose results are not cached by your DB already, and in those cases I presume that the programmer will want to maintain the temporary tables themselves - I wouldn't know when to drop ...
[Corion]: ... the temporary tables, and also don't have a good idea on how to create unique table names for them
[hippo]: OIC. In that case leave it out but invite feature requests and see if any of the users suggest it. :-)
[Corion]: Talking about this makes me realize that it's likely only a half useful idea. But it still would be convenient to have as an option...
[Corion]: hippo: Hmmm - yeah, I could document it and wait for code implementing that option to show up ;-D
